romney's campaign to lead it. we can fix this. and we will. the american people demand it, and so does our democracy. >> the president calling on the state of the union for a commission to improve the voting experience in america, to be led by what he called two long-time experts in the field. they are the top attorney for the president's campaign, this man, bob bauer, general counsel for the obama reelection effort. the other top attorney is this man, ben ginsberg, who served as national counsel for the mitt romney campaign in 2012. so one chairman from the democratic side, one chairman from the republican side. now in setting the commission up this way and announcing it this way, the president is clearly trying to turn fixing our national problem with voting into a bipartisan effort. he is trying to proceed here as if a story like desiline victor's pulls on everybody's heartstrings equally, democrat and republican. but what happened to desiline victor when she tried to vote this year was not an accident, it was on purpose. it was policy. florida republicans took overt steps to make v
